RedYoshi999 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

@Achoo My issue isn't really with the fact you can play them on Wii mode (though it's hardly desirable), it's that there's only about 20 N64 games on the Wii Shop. There's plenty more games I've been waiting years to see. Giving us GamePad support for Wii VC would only be a stopgap solution, I want to see NEW N64 games come to the VC. That's more of a general issue though, since most of the NES/SNES releases aren't new either. The only VC I find myself buying are the GBA games since they're actually new to the service and I don't already own them.



RedYoshi999 commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

I nearly commented on the forums today when the topic popped back up again to tell people to give up already, glad I didn't now. :P Can't believe Nintendo is bothering with it after all this time. It's nice it's free but I'm still not interested in using it, especially without online features.



RedYoshi999 commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

Ah thats a shame. I enjoyed Club Nintendo for what it was. Contrary to popular opinion, the Australian store has improved over the last year to the point where I didn't have enough stars to get what I wanted, when I had hoarded 20,000 stars waiting for something good. Hopefully there's a good replacement coming since the DDP ended too it's quite painful to buy digital now.



RedYoshi999 commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

EB Games Australia did it's bit by limiting pre orders to one per customer. Managed to snag one when I woke up before work. After work it was sold out! Been really lucky with these. I also snagged the special edition before it sold out.



RedYoshi999 commented on The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Begins Its ...:

Can't believe its so close! I'm compelled to buy the XL system now even though I already have a regular new 3DS. Also want to buy those MM cover plates. Plus I've pre ordered the special edition. So much going on for one game!



RedYoshi999 commented on Review: Mario Party Advance (Wii U eShop / Gam...:

This was the only Mario Party game I didn't own (and couldn't because I don't have a GBA) so I'm glad to see a VC release. The lack of multiplayer will make it impossible to play with friends but at least the single player is ok. It's certainly not the worst in the series (I'm looking at you Island Tour) but I would much rather play Mario Party 3 on Wii U.



RedYoshi999 commented on Reminder: Redeem Your Nintendo Network Deluxe ...:

Finished with 9501 points after last weeks VC releases and taking the plunge on the Pikmin movies (which cost 50c less than the voucher so win-win!) All up I earned $133. Definitely an awesome promo. Will continue to buy digital too (starting with Captain Toad today)



RedYoshi999 commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

I grew up with the N64, we entered the world at the same time, so I will always remember it fondly. It has a small but classic library. Ocarina, Majora's Mask (best game ever), Mario 64, Mario Party 1-3, Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye, Banjo Tooie/Kazooie, DK64, Paper Mario and even Yoshi's Story are all amazing games. I still dig out Mario Party 3 occasionally as it's my favourite and Mario Kart 64 was only recently bested by MK8.



RedYoshi999 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Sold to Over Ten P...:

Its interesting looking back on last year's article and people thinking 100k sales was only alright progress when now 25k sales is the best the Wii U has seen since MK8 launched. I hope Christmas does push it a bit further this year but it seems impossible to match last year. And what is going on with those old 3DS sales? It's doubled like two weeks in a row now! Who even still wants them?



RedYoshi999 commented on 3DS System Update 9.3.0-21 Introduces a Shuffl...:

Yes, amiibo settings are in for the new 3DS. It's exactly the same as the Wii U's amiibo settings menu. Also, just like the Wii U, the amiibo functionality has been patched in before any title can use it. Hopefully it means SSB will be updated soon.



RedYoshi999 commented on Inflated Prices and Limited Stock Cause Frustr...:

I'm not sure how Nintendo Australia is going with demand, I know EB/JB have sold out but you can directly order one from Nintendo by calling them. I decided not to buy one since the price is too steep with the digital version and it only works on Smash, plus I think Gamecube controllers are overrated and I'm perfectly happy with the pro controller. But now I have the sudden urge to buy one since its becoming such a collectors item...



RedYoshi999 commented on Review: Mario Kart Super Circuit (Wii U eShop ...:

I have this from the ambassador program. It's an alright game, the controls are much harder to get used to off the back of modern Mario Karts, but I wouldn't buy it again on Wii U. The lack of multiplayer really makes it pointless to own on a console. There's nothing the Wii U adds to this game to justify actually paying for it since it was free on 3DS. That and it hasn't been released yet. :p



RedYoshi999 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Pre-Purchase and P...:

And of course Nintendo Australia fails again by not offering pre loading. Might switch over to UK eshop because 17gb is going to take forever to download launch night. Or not as that means I won't get the club Nintendo soundtrack argh!



RedYoshi999 commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1 Hits on 13th November,...:

Amiibo DLC is useless for me. I hate racing as a mii so no benefits here. Can't wait for the new tracks though! Tad annoyed that SNES Rainbow Road is back again. I got very sick of playing it all the time online in MK7. And after the perfection that is N64 Rainbow Road we didn't need another one.



RedYoshi999 commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:

New 3DS release d- oh wait, it's only 16 days away! (sorry gotta rub that in sometime.) There are plenty of things I could wish for, but none will probably happen so I'll keep expectations low. Plus I'm not getting up at 6am to watch.



RedYoshi999 commented on "Pre-Download" Service to Kick Off With Super ...:

Awesome! I'm a digital guy, but downloads are soooo slow in australia it took me 12 hours to download bayonetta 1&2 (so much for a 10pm release.) Will be cool to actually play it when it releases (technically the day before in my time zone.)



RedYoshi999 commented on Nintendo Direct: New Nintendo 3DS Models Comin...:

Well this certainly made my day! I'm still in shock that Nintendo knows we exist. I'm still facing the dilemma of what version to pick. I really want the customisable faceplates but I also want the larger screens argh! Also don't want to give up my zelda 3DS XL :(



RedYoshi999 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Kart 64:

Sure the game hasn't aged too well, rubber banding sucks, frame rate issues, etc, but it's still one of the best Mario Karts to me (only topped by MK8 which happens to have some of the best N64 courses in it. ) That's all mainly to do with the glorious battle mode, which has never been surpassed. Block Fort in particular is the best battle course in the series.



RedYoshi999 commented on Weirdness: There Are Super Smash Bros. for Nin...:

I'm not sure how these codes work since I'm from Australia, so if any Aussies out there have a spare code I would be eternally grateful to you! And if the EU codes work too then I'd love one of them :) My email is



RedYoshi999 commented on Hyrule Warriors Downloadable Costume Sets Feat...:

There's a lot of Twilight Princess love in this game! Which isn't a bad thing, it's nice to see that world in HD, without going as far as a HD remake. I wouldn't really be impressed at having to buy DLC costumes, so I hope they are free.

And just look at the Majora's Mask moon screenshot and tell me that's not freaking awesome! THAT is why I want a HD remake of MM.



RedYoshi999 commented on The Nintendo 64 is Now 18 Years Old in Japan:

Oh, the N64 is just a couple months older than me. We grew up together, the N64 was all I had until I got a Wii in 2007. Games like Super Mario 64, Ocarina, Majora's Mask (still my favourite game of all time), Mario Party 1-3, Mario Kart 64, Yoshi's Story and Goldeneye 007 defined my childhood. Bring them over to Wii U VC please Nintendo!



RedYoshi999 commented on Mercedes DLC Confirmed for Mario Kart 8 in the...:

I think it will be amusing to troll people online in this kart, judging from the reaction here. XD

@rjejr Correct, summer begins in December in Australia. Not that Nintendo would ever notice, just the other week we had a "summer sale" advertised on the Wii U eShop.
